walkers, not only among thofe y^ are baptifed & So 

. - , y reckoned y^ children of 3^*^ Chh, but even among thofe 

y* have publickly owned y*^ Covenant, 3^ea & among 
thofe y* are Members in full Communion with us even 

(50) such as neglect y'' bufinefs, y* frequent Taverns, & 

publick houfes & follow Unlawful! Gaming, &Excef- 
sive drinking Strong drink, and are profane in y'^

Converfatioii, whereby y>' greatly dishonour y'^ Chrif- 
tian name & profefsiou, break y*^ good & wholefome 
laws of y^ Land, mifpend y'' precious time Impoverifh 
y^ families blaft y^ reputation, Impare y'" health, Unfit 
ymfelves for bufinefs, run ymfelves into Inumerable 
Snares & temptations & Extremely hazard y"" Im- 
mortal Souls. . :.,. 

2. We apprehend y^' y^' Increafing & prevaling of Such 
Sinful disorders as y>' have done of late among us is 
very mnch owing to our not Exercifmg y® faithfull & 
friendly watch over one another ; as we have mutually 
& Solemnly Engaged by Covenant ; & to a General 
Lukewarnmefs & Unexemplarinefs among our Selves. 

3. Under a deep Sense of our former defects we hum- 
bly Implore y^ pardoning mercy of God thro Jesus 
Chrift, att y*^ same time J'efolving & Solemnly promiT- 
ing y^ by y*^ help of Divine grace we will Endeavor 
more Effectually to discountenance & discourage Such 
Sinfull disorders for y*^ future, by taking care each 
one to reform himfelf in thefe or other Sins y* our 
Consciences Charge as with, and by being more Cir- 
cumspect & P^xemplary in our Carriage, particularly 
we promife Steddily & diligently to Imploy our Selves 
in y^ bufinefs of some honeft Calling, y^ we will 
carefully avoid di'inking Strong drink wherein is Ex- 
cefs, all Unlawfull Gaming, & y* we will be Cautious 

-' " of going in or Sitting att Taverns and publick houfes. 

And as we would be willing to deny ourfelves even 
.^ . , : our lawfull liberty in many things to prevent others 

from Stumbling thereat ; So we now promise for our 
Selves refpectively y^ in order to discountenance this 
evil & pernicious Cuftom of necdlesly going to & 
Sitting Long att y^' Taverns : we will not frequent 
Such publick houfes either on days or in y^ Evenings, 
except when we have lawfull bufinefs y* Calls us 
thither, & y* we will Endeavour So to order our af- 
fairs as y* we niay but Seldom have occafion to go 
to Such houfes & y*^ when we are obliged to go to

So much neglected, whereby disorderly walkers In-

.x!- ■-:■■ 


A number of years ago, when I began to slud}^ the de- 
scendants of John Webster of Ipswich, I soon found that the 
Websters of Essex County were 8o mingled with other Websters 
of different families that it would be necessary to take all Web- 
sters that I met with on the Records. The three principal Web 
ster families, of New England, are first, those descended from 
Gov. John Webster of Counecticut. There is a tradition that 
Gov. John first came to Cambridge or some other portion of Mas- 
sachusetts ; his name does not occur on the Cambridge Records. 

At all events he was very early in Hartford from whence he 
went to western Massachusetts. The histor}' of this family is be- 
ing very thoroughly investigated by Rev. M. R. Webster of Roch- 
ester, N. Y. The family is a large one and widely scattered. 1 
have found members of it in New Hampshire and eastern Massa- 

The most numerous family of eastern Massachusetts, New 
Hampshire and Maine is the descendants of John Webster of Ips_ 
wich. Clerk of the Rolls. I have collected over a thousand families, 
the descendants of John of Ipswich and Mary Shatswell. 

The third family is that of Thomas Webster of Hampton. 
This family is not a large one. They have, however, given me 
much trouble since they went into the same localities as the de- 
scendants of John of Jpswich and gave their children the same 
names. Daniel Webster belonged to this family. Daniel's father, 
Ebenezer, was one of the early settlers of Salisbury, N. H., having 
been employed by the proprietors to make a settlement at that 
place. His associate in this work was John Webster, who was no 
relation to him, but who was a descendant of John Webster of 

The late Prentice Webster, when he compiled his history of his 
branch of the Webster family, concluded from some imperfect in- 

90 J^otes in Ttelation to the Webster Family, [July 

vestigations that this John Webster was a cousin of Ebenezer. 
But John, the cousin of Ebenezer, settled in Hampstead, as is 
Bhovn by his tombstone and numerous records. The line of John 
of Salisbury is John^ of Ipswich and Mary Shatswell, John^ Web- 
ster and Ann Batt, John'^ Webster and Bridget Huggins, John'* 
Webster and Sarah Greeley. John of Salisbury was John'^ Web- 
ster, and he married, first, Ruth Clough ; second, widow Susanna 
(Snow) Gale. _ 

John of Hampstead descended from Thomas Webster of Hamp- 
ton in the following line : Thomas^ Webster and Sarah Brewer, 
John^ and Abiah Shaw. John,^ who settled first in Newbury and 
afterwards in Hampstead, married Elizabeth Luut. In a deed he 
calls Jeremy Webster brotlier, and he named a daughter Abiah, as 
did several of his descendants. I have very full records of the 
families of John of Ipswich and Thomas of Hampton and shall be 
glad to give any information I can in regard to these families. 
The Rev. Melvill R. Webster of Rochester, N. Y., will be very 
glad to hear from any descendant of Gov. John AYebster of Con- 
necticut. • 

I have met with a number of Websters who do not belong to 
either of the above families, and my present object is to give a 
short account of three or four of these families who were in this 
country before 1760. 

In the roll of those who served in King Philip's war we find the 
name of Benjamin Webster. There is some doubt as to whether 
he was of Beverly or Salem ; perhaps after the war he resided for 
a short time in Ipswich. His name does not occur on the town 
records of Salem or Beverly, except in one instance. 

Benjamin Webster was paid P for work on the Highway's in 
Beverly in the year 1689. Benjamin Webster was John Gainers 
man in Ipswich in 1681. Some unknown Webster left a widow 
Grace, in Beverly, where she was living in 1697 when she received 
from the Selectmen a peck of Indian, and 1/2 pk. of Rye meal. 

Dec. 13, 1700, Widow Grace Webster of Beverl}' married Chris- 
topher Brown of Salem. There is no record that this Widow 
Grace Webster ever had au}^ children. The estate of Benjamin 
Webster does not appear on the Probate Records. 

On Jan. 7, 1715, William^ Webster of Beverly married Susan

Benjamin Webster of Dudley made his will April 9, 1755 and

Benjamin and John's wives were sisters, and daughters of An- 
drew Coburn of Beverly. 

William Webster of Dudley, cordwainer, purchased June 8, 
1745 land in Dudley of Joseph Baker, yeoman. 

William^ Webster and Susanna his wife, sold to Joseph Picket 
5 June 18, 1744, his house, barn and lot in Beverly, Mass. This 
lot contained seven poles and was given to William Webster 
by William Trask. William and Susanna both made their marks. 
This is the only transaction on tlie Essex deeds in which the name 
of William Webster appears. He was evidently poor and did not 
own real estate with the exception of this lot. 

Benjamin- Webster of Beverly married Ruth Gray and had the 
following children :

Benjamin and his wife were both members of the Church in

Windham, Conn. Ilis will was made Jan. 29, 1762, he being 
sick. He mentions his four daughters, Grace Neff, Judith Coburn, 
Martha and Charity Webster. Sept. 10, 17G8, Martha and Charity 
Webster of Windham, Conn., and jNIay 2, 1767, Samuel Coburn, 
Jr., and Judith Coburn acknowledge receipt from Ichabod Down- 
ing, Adm. Estate of Benjamin Webster late of Windham, Conn, 
their father. 

I have made diligent search to see if I could prove anything 
in regard to the parentage of the above William and Benjamin, 
but I can find no records of any kind to show that they were even 
related to each other. 

In absence of all proof T am inclined to think that they were 
brothers, and sons of Benjamin and Grace Webster. Benjamin 
and Grace were evidently poor or we should find some records in 
regard to them at Salem ; tJie boj^s were probably, as was custom- 
ary in those days, put out to service, on the death of their father. 
This left the widow free to marry again. They both name sons 
Benjamin, and Benjamin names a daughter Grace ; they both move 
from Beverly to neighboring towns, Benjamin going to Windham, 
Conn., while William went to Dudley, Mass. 

The name AYebster died in Benjamin's family at his death, but 
we are able to trace William's descendants to the present time. 

Letters of administration were issued to William Webster, of 
Dudley, cordwainer, on the estate of his late son William Webster

to do so, and they remained isolated until they were traced to 

There was a Thomas^ Webster in Upton, Mass. in 1771, who 
was born in 1725 and died in 1802. So far this Thomas Web- 
ster has not been connected with any of the known families of 
Websters. Even the name of his wife is in doubt. One account 
says it was Mehitable Clemens. At the time he made his will he 
calls his wife Elizabeth. She was born in 1725 and died in Upton

corded at Boston and Exeter. He first appears at Exeter July 16, 
1700 when he is called Merchant and buys of Robert Wadleigh Jr.

Nov. 11, 1717, Thomas Webster of Exeter, innholder, quitclaims 
to his brother William Webster of Boston, shopkeeper and house - 
wright all his interest in their father James Webster's estate. This 
deed serves to identify him. In only one deed is the name of his wife 
mentioned. Jan. 18, 1728, Thomas Webster of Exeter, innholder, 
exchanges with Jeremiah Bean, for a tract of land in Exeter at the 
Masthouse hill made over to my son Nathaniel Webster, a lot of land 
in Exeter, containing 31|- acres and also another tract in Exeter on

wife relei)ses her right of dower. 

Sept. 20, 1727, Thomas Webster of P^xeter, innholder, for love, 
goodwill and affection, gave his daughter Deborah (wife of Zebulon 
Giddings of Exeter) land near my dw-elling house, begining at S. IC. 
corner of my fence thai turns away to the old burying place and so 
runs West as the fence as far as the old Rincrtaile tree standin<i on

bushes by the old well which was formerl}^ and from said bushes 
East to my fence again by the lane and so by the fence to first bounds, 
it being for a home lot and garden where Zebulon Giddings has a new 
frame for a dwelling house, being -|- acre. [Zebulon Giddings house 
was still standing, 1900.] 

June 26, 1728, Thomas Webster of Exeter gave his son Nathaniel, 
land, house and barn in Exeter. 

.Oct. 28, 1732, Thomas Webster of Exeter, gave his daughter 
Deborah and her husband Zebulon Giddins 80 acres in Exeter, lying 
on a branch of the Piscasset river. 

Nov. IG, 1733, 'I'homas Webster of Exeter for love &c. gave his 
daughter P^lizabeth, 100 acres at Hudsons brook, between Plais- 
steds way and Tuekaway road and Pesecessick River. 

Dec. 1, 1733, Thomas Webster of Exeter for love &c. gave his 
son Thomas 2 tracts of land in Exeter on the West side of little 

Jan. 8, 1734/5, AVhereas Thomas Webster gave 100 acres of land

Nov. 16, 1733, bounds not being specified it is agreed that the 
bounds shall begin at a hemlock on the north side of Tuekaway 
road marked R. W. being Robert Wadleigh. 

Jan. 20, 1737/8, Thomas Webster of Exeter yeoman, for love of 
his son in law Zebulon Giddings of Exeter gave him all his right 
as proprietor in Chichester. There are no records of the death of 
Thomas or of the probate of his estate. He probably died about 1740.

William Webster lived all of his life in Boston and there are a 
number of real estate transactions in which he was engaged on 

Webster's Arch on Washington St. near the Herald office is 
referred to in the following deed. Ephraim Savage sold to him 
Nov. 21, 1711, a lot on the west side of Cornhill. The front was 
20 ft. on a way 6 feet wide. Webster can build under or over the 
said passage way but must keep it 10 ft. high. 

Apr. 27, 1720, he petitioned that the selectmen may be impow- 
ered to sell unto him the Fee of a piece of land formerl}^ leased by 
the town to his predecessors. The Town granted this petition but 
the land was not conveyed until after his death. Then for the con- 
sideration of £108, the lot was conveyed to Joshua AYroe and Jona- 
than Williams his executors. This lot which was the one that James 
Webster leased, was bounded as follows : S. E. by Sudbury St. 59 
ft. N. E. on William Burgess 48 ft. N. W. by the Mill Pond 52 ft. 
S. W. on the high way & vacant land 45 ft. From 1714 to 1717 he 
was measurer of boards. In 1714 and 1719 he was tythingman. 
His will was made Oct. 4, 1720 and probated Oct. 17, 1720. In it 
he mentions his wife Mary, sister Elizabeth Hawksworth, brother- 
in-law Jonathan Williams. Eldest son William wharfkeeper. Son- 
in-law Joshua Wroe, and daughter Ann Wroe. Daughter Mary, 
daughter Rebecca, lame and infirm. The youngest sons to be put 
out to board and "he of them that shall take his learning best, and 
is capable thereof shall be brought up in the college out of my estate. 
Evidently they did not take to learning as neither of them graduated 
from the college. ,

By Eben Putnam. ; 

It is not often that tradition withstands historical investigation. 
The growth of interest in ancient things, the demand for the truth 
versus sentiment and romance have led to the discovery of weak 
or missing links in the chain of evidence relied upon to confer great 
age or certain associations with most of our cherished landmarks. 
But in the cose of the Fairbanks house, investigation, while discoun- 
tenancing various rather absurd statements, has onl}^ resulted in 
strengthening the evidence that in this structure we may have the 
oldest building in New England. Not that the house as a whole is 
of the great age claimed for it but that the original central house is 
actually, barring unimportant self-evident changes, the original house 
erected by Jonathan Fairbanks, probably at the time he settled in 

!. This contention may be accepted as proved, inasmuch as it is 
possible at this day to prove such a statement. 

The Fairbanks house today consists of the original house (the 
two ground floor rooms, the chambers above, and the garret), a small 
modern leanto attached to the eastern end, a late leanto the entire 
length of the main house, and two gambrel roofed wings, one at 
either end. Probably neither wing dates back one hundred and fifty 
years but there is some indication of greater age in the eastern wing. 
The original frame ie practically intact, although important por- 
tions, as the sill, have rotted away, and the chimney girts have given 
way under the strain of the weight resting on them, resulting in a 
settling of the entire front of the house. 

~ The roof is the most interesting section of the house. It is very 
steep, framed in the old English fashion and is very likely the only 
surviving example of that style of framing as practised in New 

5 ' 

148 TJie Fairhanks House in Dedliam^ JTass. [October 

Parts of the walls were filled with a plaster of hay and clay, and 
other evidences of antiquity are the small window openings of which 
two remain. In the peak of the roof were casement windows and 
there is in existence, though not in the old house, one of the frames 
containing the diamond shaped panes set in lead. The large, and 
therefore early, bricks of the chimney are laid in clay, and wooden 
ties are found, another ancient custom — a survival even of classic 
days. Possibly the chimney is not as ancient as the frame, but all 
parts of the old house are very old. Of especial interest is the inside 
clapboardiug for wainscot. 

The original door was to the west of the present door and its 
position is easily traced. 

The existing stairs and upper fire place, and certain other fea- 
tures in the eastern rooms, are modern. 

The inventory of the estate of Jonathan Fairbanks who died 5 
Dec, 1668, mentions the hall (kitchen), parlor, hall and parlor cham- 
bers, and tht garret, an absolutely correct description of the present 
building without the several additions. Moreover the inventory names 
"the room called the new house", "the chamber in the new house", 
"the working cellar", "another cellar", and "the cellar-yard". The 
room called the "new house" was a depository for farming imple- 
ments ; the chamber, as usual, a storehouse for grain. There is no 
evidence that the "new house" was used as a habitation and it may 
not have been connected with the mansion house. The cellars were 
probably separate structures and not connected either. In the work- 
ing cellar were lathes, etc., and in the other cellar dairy and beer 
utensils. The original house had no cellar. 

Through the formation of a Fairbanks Family Association, which 
now holds the title to the property, it is hoped to raise a fund sufficient 
to restore the old house, or at least to place it in such a condition of 
repair as will enable it to be preserved for centuries longer. What- 
ever is done should be done very soon and should be carried out un- 
der the supei'vision of some architect qualified for the work. Such 
a man should be a student of old time construction, perfectly familiar 
with every detail of the framing and construction of such buildings ; - 
else many a valuable bit of evidence will be destroyed in the work 
of restoration. There is no work so sad for the student of antiquities 
to observe as the usual so-called restorations. With the best inten-

customs of bygone days have ruined many a prized relic of the past. 
Much money will be needed to carry out the work properly, several 
thousand dollars. First, a most careful and accurate survey is 
necessary, and when the work of repair and restoration begins 
there should be no question of letting it out by contract. It must 
be done by day labor by skilled mechanics under skilled and well 
paid supervision. Ample opportunity can be found to separate the 
original house from so much of the decaying, though picturesque ad- 
ditions in such a way that the actual original building may stand forth 

The present occupant is Miss Rebecca Fairbanks, of the eighth 
generation, but she is soon to leave the ancestral home when, unless 
immediate and proper care is taken, there is danger of its destruc- 
tion. To guard and preserve this precious relic — a matter of con- 
cern to every descendant of our Puritan emigrants and of pride to 
every New I!lnglander — money is needed, and at once. The Trea- 
surer of the Association is Rufus G. Fairbanks of West Medway, 
.and the family historian is J. Wilder Fairbanks of Boston who is al- 
so the editor of the Fairbanks Historical, a quarterly publication de- 
voted to the interests of the family. Either of these gentlemen will 
gladly welcome communicatious relative to the homestead. 

The ancient brass sun dial, evidently the very "brass dial" men- 
tioned in the inventory of Jonathan Fairbanks, is preserved in the 
cabinet of the Dedham Historical Society. It bears the inscription 
"J. F. 1650".

"Memorial Poems and Brief Ancestral Record of the Webster

Such is the title of a small book that we have received from the 
compiler. It begins with a brief notice of Benjamin Webster of 
; Wilton, ]\le., the writer''^ father. This is followed by a number of 
poems some by the author of the book and others extracted from 
various authors, and, finally, on page thirty one, we have the '• An- 
cestral Histoiy of The Webster Family and Descendants." This 
history begins with the family of Thomas Webster of Hampton, the 
Emigrant ancestor of the compiler, and is followed by the families of 
his descendants in one line, through Ebenezer, Joseph, Joseph, and 
Benjamin, with a slight digression to the family of Daniel Webster- 
The family of Benjamin Webster and his descendants is given in 
detail, but with very little attempt at arrangement, and there are no 
cross references. It has two indices, one to the poems, and an index 
of names. The book is in no sense a history of the Webster Family 
but merely a collection of the names of the descendants of Benjamin 
Webster. The author did not even take the trouble to give the 
names of the children of Joseph and Maria (Goss) Webster which he 
had, as they were furnished him at the same time he received the fami- 
lies of Thomas and Ebenezer.

Vol. V. January, 1905. No. 4. 


V By Eben Putnam. 

To the European whose impiession of a Republic has been obtained 
either from reading ancient history, the story of the French Revolu- 
tion, or the noble declaration in our own coustitution that all men are 
born free and equal, it doubtless appears incongruous with what he 
- deems to be due to republican principles that Americans should 
claim and make use of heraldic bearings. 

A coat of arms has come to be regarded as an assertion that its 
owner is of gentle birth, with all that that implies. In a monarchical 
country, it is too often a far greater incentive to prove one's right to 
gentility for profit to one's self than simply to search into the past 
from laudable curiosity or pride in one's forbears. 

If a republic does not concede rank to a man of birth regardless 
of his achievements, why should its citizens put forward a claim to 
gentility b}' using coat armor? 

Many Americans look upon the subject from much the same 

standpoint. Not that they understand the '• free and equal" clause 

■ of the constitution as the stranger would interpret it, but they feel a 

proper resentment against those persons who would claim superiority 

simply because of social position inherited or obtained without achieve. 

V ment either in their own person of some near ancestor. 

'^- An understanding of the origin and true significance of a coat of 

arms would undoubtedly go far to do away with the unpopularity of 

armorial bearings, as well as to bring about proper regulation for 

t^eir use. 

|; Heraldry, as now in vogue, reduced to a system governed by rules. 

is the result of a development which took place during the awakening

Coat Armor in the United States. [January 

of feudal western Europe, when chivalry was at its height. It was 
a distinct advance in aesthetics. From the earliest times of which 
history tells, man has souaht to ornament himself or his armor with 
some sign or symbol. Perhaps he adopted a symbol intended to pro" 
pitiate a divinity ; perhaps a boast of some former deed of prowess ; 
possibly he wore a badge of rank, citizenship, or tribe. Nearly all 
races of men have more or less developed a system bearing resem- 
blance to what we call heraldry. 

The fighting man, a term which would comprise at first all mankind, 
but as society became more complex the military class only, would have 
some particular sign or symbol which he venerated or honored. 
Doubtless the rise of a pure Christianity checked largely the use of 
certain symbols, and may account for the non-appearance of heraldic 
devices upon some of the tombs of noted warriors of the centuries im- 
mediately preceding the period when heraldry full grown bursts sud- 
denly upon our horizon. 

The custom of fighting in armor which concealed the face and per- 
sonal characteristics was undoubtedly the cause of a systematized 
heraldry. The tournaments of Germany and of other feudal coun- 
tries ; the gathering of armies and especially of knights from all parts 
of western Europe, for the expeditions to the East and for recovering 
the Holy Land, spread broadcast the newer heraldry and established 
a custom which has come down to modern times. Heraldry has been 
subjected to the vagaries of fashion. Simple, useful, rules long suf- 
ficed for the proper cataloguing and description of the cognizances of 
the great houses and their military followers. But as the necessity of 
heraldic devices grew less the importance of one's coat of arms faded. 

There came a time when the aristocracy of England, differing from 
the nobility of the continent, represented more and more the money- 
making class ; when wealth, becoming more widely distributed, carried 
luxuries and ambition from class to class. The civil wars, the mi- 
gration of country people, and the openings afforded energetic, ambi- 
tious men, resulted in a desire to learn of one's ancestry. The same 
came to pass in America and indeed is going on today. There is this 
difference, that if a new man in the 16*'^ century could establish his 
right by descent, or lacking that obtained what was practically a 
patent of gentility, a grant of arms from the College of Heralds, he 
obtained a much more important footing in the world than any 
similar proceeding would yield him today. In those days there 
did not exist the modern facilities for investigation, and evi-

. dences were accepted or rejected from different considerations than 
■■ would now obtain. This was the period of the Heraldic Visitations* 
;: : and out of them has grown up the claim thai a person must either be 
.able to prove his descent from some ancestor of his name recorded in 
■: a Visitation pedigree as entitled to coat armor, or take out a new 
grant, and that any modern coat not of either the above origins is 
; : *' bogus." 

This contention is vigorously denied, and, moreover, an ever 
= strengthening party of well equipped historical critics is seeking to 
obtain a more rational interpretation of what in England constituted 
an armiger and a gentleman, two apparently entirely distinct classes. 
The outcome of this contest will be awaited with much interest in 
America, as the radical party, that of common sense, and apparently 
best grounded in examples and history, very nearly take the popular 
American view. 

Coat armor \\i\s been in use in the European colonies in America 
from the time of the fust settlement. It was the custom of the home 
countries, and as such perfectly familiar to the colonists. 

Whatever rights existed and Avhatever rules prevailed in the 
old home regarding the use of heraldic insignia, were adhered to 
by the American colonist. He may have been Dutch, French, 
German, and, if entitled to arms, he did not change his bearings to 
agree with the rules of English heraldry. This independence haS 
always prevailed and thus in America we find examples of the her- 
aldry of all western Europe. And, as is well known, the rules of her- 
aldry in the different countries vary in point of colors, in charges, 
and in the manner of placing the charges. .. 

Persons in official position, if possessed of an heraldic seal, almost 
invariably made use of it in sealing important documents. But there 
was little if any display of heraldic bearings in private life, until the 
means of the colonists permitted them to indulge in the luxuries of 
imported gravestones with armorial bearings, and for the more im- 
portant members of the community to vie with the royal officials in 
reviving the use of heraldic devices. Hatchments at the funerals of 
the more wealthy town dwellers, where the fashions would prevail, 
were probably the most conspicuous instances of the display of coat 
armor. In the country districts the use of arms for purposes of 
display must have been rare, for the opportunities of procuring such

representations were not great. A colonist visiting London fre- 
quently had a seal ma'de or procured a drawing of a coat of arms, 
which he at least would have knov^n if bogus. In matters of this 
sort we must judge largely by our present standards. Recalling to 
mind the greater immediate importance attributed to gentle birth at 
that day and its accepted evidence, coat-armor, is it likely that a 
reputable gentleman, even though he were only a colonist, brought 
up with much the same standards of honor as we of today, would de- 
liberately manufacture false evidences ? 

The son or grandson of an emigrant visiting England or the Con- 
tinent, probably had some knowledge of not distant relatives. Burke's 
General Armor}^ was not on the counter of the stationer. There was 
required some special knowledge, unless he was satisfied that the 
arms in Guillim or contemporary works properly appertained to the 
family from which he was descended. The opportunities of the colonist 
to learn and verify family tradition in tJie 17th and 18th centuries 
were much greater than we realize, and the only interest which a coat 
of arms has to one is that of its association with his family. There is 
no reason to believe that the popular error of modern times, that a 
coat of arms appertains to a name rather than a particular family or 
branch of a family, was the reason of the assumption of many coats 
of arms in colonial times. Then, as now, persons sometimes actu- 
ally believed tliemselves members of an armorial family, wliich inves- 
tigation proved erroneous. But these errois arose almost entirely in 
comparatively kite years. The writer believes any American should be 
allowed to use, without being subject to criticism or ridicule of self- 
appointed critics, a coat of arms which has been accepted by his an- 
cestors as theirs by right and so identified with his family, provided 
he is satisfied in his own mind as to a proper origin of that coat. 
But he should not hesitate, if it too nearly approaches the arms of 
another family of the same name and race, whom he knows to be en- 
titled to those arms, to make such a change in his own coat that his 
sense of honor would dictate. - 

Yet, remembering the dissimilar national origin of our people and 
the approximation of un-English surnames to the English standard, it 
is not unreasonable to expect the same duplication of armorial bear- 
ings in the United States that one finds even in England, where there 
have been frequent honest attempts to difference the bearings of fam- 
ilies; and where also the custom has sometimes prevailed of granting 
to a new man a coat of arms so nearly resembling those borne by 


Coat Armor' in the United States. 


well known and historic families, to whom he is in no way related, 
that a gross deception was officially connived at. 

The writer certainly advocates the adoption of distinctive coat- 
armor by Americans of established position, when it happens that 
their hereditary right to arms cannot be proven, not as a badge of 
gentility, but as a personal distinction to be transmitted to their de- 
scendants. Such an emblem would prove a tie among members of 
the family more enduring than the possession of wealth. 


In the Massachusetts Archives (v. 158, 229) is a letter from 
Michael Ilillegas, dated 20 Aug. 1781, addressed to Gov. Hancock, 
on the importance of preserving the records of public bodies during 
the Revolution and advising the adoption of measures similar to 
those adopted by Pennsylvania. Hillegas was an influential citizen 
and prominent merchant of Philadelphia, born in 1729. He served 
the Colony and vState of Pennsylvania in responsible capacities, and 
also the city of Philadelphia. He compiled and edited minutes of 
the proceedings of the Revolutionary bodies in Pennsylvania under 
authorization of the State in 1781. He died in 1804. ^ > ^^.^ &.

but I have no account of the name of his wife.

Note on the Griffen Famil}^, compiled by Joseph Griffen about 

Richard Griffen^ emigrated from Wales, and was one of the first 
settlers on Long Island. He lived at Flushing, L. I., and had sev- 
eral children, but it is unceitain how many. The family of John 
Griffen at Purchase (Westchester Co., N. Y.) and John and Joseph 
Amawalk were descendants of his. He had a son by the name of 

Richard,- who continued to live at Flushing and married a 
woman named Haight. Jacob, Nichole!=!, and others of Nine Part- 
ners are descendants of the same family. Also the families of Haight 
at Rye. The said Richard Griffen had fourteen children. The eldest 
was Samuel ; the others are Joshua, Jonathan, Edward.^ Obedlah, 
Joseph, Gilbert, James, Richard, Abraham, Deborah, Sarah, Mary, 
Mirriam. Samuel and James went east. 

Samuel left several children. James went to Oxford, and was 
a military character ; he married in Boston, where he continued his pro- 
fession, and left no children. Richard and Abraham went to the 
southward, where they settled and left families. Jonathan, Edward 
and Obediah settled in Westchester Co., N. Y., near each other; 
Jonathan at Scarsdale, N. Y. ; Edward and Obediah at Tuekahoe, or 
Phillips Manor. Jonathan was a military character, and an active, 
enterprising man. He did much business in a mercantile way, and 
acquired a large property, but he suffered much in his estate during 
the Revolutionary War. He left no children. Edward, Obediah and 
Joseph moved to Nine Partners. Edward left twelve cliildren, whose 
names were Richard, Sarah, Thomas, Obediah, Gershom, and Jona- 
than,'* Bridget, Susanna, Sarah, Amy, Mirriam and Elizabeth. 

Richard moved at the close of the Revolutionary War to 
Upper Canada, with nine children. Left one at Nine Partners. He 

had five sons and two daughters who lived to have families, besides 

two that died young. Thomas went to Nova Scotia at the close of 

the Revolution and died there. Had three children who lived at

wards moved to Upper Canada. Gershoin moved to Coeymans, N. Y., 
and died there with an epidemic fever. lie left fis'e sous and 
two daughters. The names of the sons were Uriah, Caleb, Seneca, 
John and Jacob ; of the daughters, Mirriam and Phebe. Bridget 
married Moses Halleck and died at Nine Partners. Susannah died 
at Tuckahoe and left one son by the name of Hunt. Amy married 
David Travis. Sarah married Stephen Tomkins and died at Chat- 
ham. Mirriam married Uriah Davis ; left no children. Elizabeth 
married Thomas Wilbur ; had three sons, Nathan, Edward and 
Thomas, and several daughters; she died in Wilton, N. Y. Jona- 
than, the youngest of the sons, married Mary Brown, daughter of 
Nathaniel Brown of Dutchess Co. He moved from Nine Partners to 
Saratoga in 1783. He had eigiit children : four sons and four daugh- 
ters who lived to grow up, besides two daughters who died young. 
Their names were Gershom,^ Samuel, Bridget, Mary Elizabeth, Isaac 
and Jonathan and Sarah. Sarah died without being married. Ger- 
shom married Hannah Hoxie, daughter of Zebulon Hoxie, one of the 
first settlers of Easton, N. Y. He had six children : Joseph^, Huldah, 
Mary, Anna, Alice and Sarah. Samuel married Abagail Wilbur, 
daughter of Thomas Wilbur of Saratoga and had several children. 
Bridget married Phillip Palmer of Galway and had several children. 
Mary married Isaac S. Wilde of Saratoga, and had two sons and 
three daughters : Isaac and Jonathan, Sarah, Hannah and Debora. 
Elizabeth Griffen married Richard Barnes of Saratoga, and had no 
children. Isaac married Rjbecca Macy, daughter of Abraham Macy, 
of Ghent, N. Y. She left two children, after which he married 
Anna Shepperd, daughter of Thomas Shepperd of Saratoga, and had

Germans. — A recent publication b}^ The Librar}^ of Congress, 
destined to prove of utility to genealogists, is " A List of Works 
Relating to the Germiuis in the United States," compiled by A. P. C. 
Grifiin, Chief Bibliographer. Mr. Griffin says this List represents the 
contents of the Library on the subject of the Germans in the United 
States, so far as found by examination of the card catalogue and of 
the shelves. The literature on the Hessians has not been noted. The 
history of colonial settlements has been noticed, as well as of the 
modern immigrations. 

Vital Records of the Town of Brewster, Mass., to the end 
of the 3'ear 1849, literally transcribed under the direction of George 
Ernest Bowman, Editor of the Mayflower Descendant. Published 
b}' the Mass. Society of Mayflower Descendants at the charge of the 
Cape Cod Town Record Fund. Boston, 1904. 8vo, cloth, pages 281. 

This volume of records is the first fruit of the Cape Cod Town 
Record Fund which originated with members of the Mayflower So- 
ciety, and by means of which we shall eventually have at hand for 
convenient reference the records of the principal towns in south- 
eastern jMassachusetts. Not only are we thus enabled to have access 
in print to a literal cop}^ not a chopped and disfigured alphabet of 
names and dates such as are being published by other societies (who 
should know l)etter), but the records are preserved for all time- 
insured against loss or defacement by fire, water or any of the 
dangers which are ever present, and of which all who have occasion 
to refer to old records are well aware. 

The history of this volume is of unusual interest. From the outset 
the Society has printed town records as in the original, and in the 
Mayflower Descendant are to be found in print many of our early 
records of births, marriages and deaths ; but it is also safe to assert, 
though the writer has no information regarding this point, that it 
was expected that the State of Massachusetts would extend the op- 
eration of the Vital Statistics Law so as to allow the Mayflower 
Society the privileges accorded other societies printing town records, 
and thus not only obtain for public libraries throughout the state the 
advantages of possession of copies of this valuable record, but permit 
the Mayflower Society to recoup itself, in part, from the fund annu- 
ally appropriated by the State for the encouragement of the preserva- 
tion in print of our tovrn records. This, however, was not to be. 
The Commission, having power to accept this work as one of the 
series of Vital Statistics, refused, on the ground, it is believed, that 



1905] '■■■'"'"■:':_-■ :-'^--\ ■ J^otes and Queries.- 193 

:^ W not being printed in the fashion preferred by the Commission it could 

not be accepted. The law calls for a literal copy of the records to 

be deposited with the Secretary of State ; does not prescribe how 

;■;■.; the printed copy shall he arranged. But it is manifestly the intent 

/ v; ■ : of the law to obtain the preservation of the records, and will anyone 

assert that there is any better manner of attaining that end than by 

■^^^■■ry$: printing a literal copy ! We regret sincerely the failure of the Society 

to obtain recognition so well deserved, thus robbing the genealogical 

;,l , public to the extent of hampering the work of the Society in printing 

■ ■ these invaluable records, which otherwise would proceed much faster. 

:. v Now as to the book itself. First, it is well printed on good paper, 

in proper sized type, and is a credit to all concerned. 
;'; Brewster was incorporated in 1803 and was named in honor of 

. . Elder William Brewster. Originally a part of Harwich, it is of course 
necessary to refer to other records than those here printed for the 
vital statistics of the people of Brewster before the incorporation, yet 
.' there are very many entries of births prior to the date of incorpora- 

: , ;. tion. In every case reference is given to the page of the original 
record, thus facilitating research if any doubt arises as to the correct- 
ness of the transcript. And in this connection it is well to bear in 
1 mind that in the town records accepted b}^ the Commission, those 

I :vC/-- publications subsidized by the State, this very important feature is 

I etitirely lacking. If one hesitates to accept the dictum of the editor 

j of the alphabetically arranged Vital Statistics there is no help for it 

save to examine either the original or the MSS. copy in the office of 
the Secretary of State, and as the majority of ancient records do not 
appear in exact chronological order, there is almost sure to be an ex- 
asperating search to find the entry Avanted. 

Mr. Bowman has edited the Brewster record with good judgment, 
printing every entry except certain duplications, but when these entries 
are not in the literal sense duplicates of former entries he has notomit- 
'.■'.^^'r ted them. Thus one may refer to this volume with as absolute surety of 
finding every item of the record as if the record itself were examined. 
:r:-^:-'^y' The names of ninety four advance subscribers to the Brewster 
Records are printed, among which appear but two Massachusetts 
libraries, a striking commentary on how the action of the Commission 
will surely be viewed by Public Libraries, who expected the usual 
distribution by the state, which has taken 500 coi)ies of the other Vital 
Statistics at a price profitable to the publishers. A hasty estimate 
of what would have been due to the Mayflower Society under a proper

interpretation of the law for 500 copies of this voUime, the number 
the Commission is authorized to purchase, shows that the Mayflower 
Societ}^ might, under fair treatment, have recouped its fund to the 
extent of at least $750, perhaps fully $1000 ; which would have paid 
the cost of bringing out another volume of records. 

There is an excellent index to the Brewster Records, and it 
would not surprise the writer if this volume brought about a needed 
reform in the rulings of the Commission, and resulted in the pub- 
lication of Vital Statistics in the only form which should be coun- 
tenanced officially. ■ E. P. 

Johnson. — The New England Historical Genealogical Register 
for Januar}^ contains the beginniug of a genealogy of the Johnson 
family of Woburn, descendants of Capt. Edward Johnson. It is the 
result of long and careful research by the author, Hon. Edward F. 
Johnson, assisted b}^ such capable antiquaries as Mr. Arthur G. Lor- 
iug and Librarian Cutter. We understand the Register articles are 
intended to be the nucleus of a complete genealogy of the family. 

Converse. — Some of the Ancestors and Descendants of Samuel 
Convers, Jr., of Thompson Parish, Killingly, Conn., Major James 
Converse of AVoburn, Mass., Hon. Heman Allen, M. C, of Milton 
and Burlington, Vermont, Capt. Jonathan Bixby, 8r., of Killingly, 
Conn., is the title of an extensive genealogical history of the principal 
branches of the Converse family in America descended from Deacon 
Edward Convers, one of the founders of Woburn, and the important 
Vermont and Connecticut Valley family of Allen descended from Cor- 
poral Edward Allen of Ipswich, Mass., and later of Sutlield, Conn., 
introducing lengthy sketches of families intermarrying with those 
families, especially in the lines of Prentice, Edgecumbe, Painter, 
Baldwin, Nash, Porter, Lamberton, etc. The families mentioned are 
but a few of those so fortunate as to obtain representation. The 
work is to appear in two volumes, is likely to run to 1000 pages, 
and will be abundantly indexed and profusely illustrated, and printed 
on the best paper. This great work, the result of many years' labor 
of Col. Charles Allen Converse of Philadelphia, will be published in 
the early spring by the Research Publication Co., the work being 
done at the Salem Press. The price will be increased after publica- 
tion. There is little doubt that in matters of detail and conscientious 
endeavor to preserve all that is worthy of preservation concerning

Webstkr — John and Eachel Webster of Portsmouth, N. H. 
The information in regard to this John AYebster is very limited, I

1658, John Webster subscribed to the rate for the support of 
the miuister £1.10. 

Dec. 16, 1658, John Webster of Portsmouth in Piscattaqu River 
sold to John Cult of same phice 10 acres on great Island; 2 acres 
of which I bought of Mr. Henry Sherburn and Roger Knight, and 
the other 8 adjoining to it for £25. Wife Rachel made her miu'k. 

July 7, 1676, Rachel Webster of Portsmouth in County of Ports- 
mouth and Dover for £6. sold to Thomas Ladbrook my now dwelling 
house in Portsmouth by y^ water side not far from y^' meeting 
house. Together with all movables and immovables belonging to 
said house. 

March 26, 1663. The widow Webster did with the Selectmen for 
droyin of wine formerly till this time sum of £3.0.0. 

Savage says, iv, 449' — .John Webster of Portsmouth 1648 a 
brewer, as constable was allowed charge for bringing Henry Taylor 
a prisoner to Boston in Col. Rec. HI 140. He may be the man to 
whom grant of land was made by Salem in 1638 in hope to draw him, 
and died 1662. 

Pope seems to think that the John of Salem was John Webster of 
Ipswich, but as the Salem man is described as a brewer and baker, 
I think that there is more probability of Savage being right. 
:■:. The note referred to by Savage is as follows. Joh. Webster cun- 
stable at Strabery Banke (psenting a bill of charges for the cariage 
of Henry Taylor to the prison at Boston to the vallew of £5.4*0. at 
by ^ticuler in the s^ bill appears for the satisfaction of whom, is 
was ordered, that the secritary should give warrent to the marshall 
of Puscataque to leuie the same out of the estate of the s'' Taylor i.<: 
if Taylor hath not sufficient &c. then the s*^ warrent to be to require it 
of the inhabitants of Puscataque & for non payment to levie the 
same. Col. Rec, III, 140. 

The question naturally arises was the John Webster who was Con- 
stable the same John as the one who was Selectman. Did this John 
leave any descendants?

Answer to Gobe query. '* Daughter Mary Gobe," mentioned in 
the will of Ralph Mousal, April 13, 1657, was the daughter of John 
Gove of Charlestown, who in his will of Jan. 22, 1647/8, gave his 
daughter ^lary, with his wife's full consent, to Ralph Mousal and 
his wife to bring up. John Gove (freeman of Charlestown, May 22, 
1638), left wife Mary, sons John and P^dward and this daughter 
Mary. His widow married (2) John Mansfield, brotlier-in-law ot 
Kev. John Wilson, first minister of Boston. Ralph IMousal men- 
tioned in his will wife Ales [Alice], sons John and Thomas, and in 
addition to " my daughter Mary Gobe," to whom he left " fifteen 
pounds to be paid at 18 years of age," three daughters of his own, 
Ruth Wood [wife of Edward Wood] Elizabetli Mousal and Macy 
Mousal, the latter of whom is said to have married Thomas (2) 
Goble (Thomas 1) of Concord. Can any one give proof and date 
of the marriage? E. E. Dana. 

GexSlalouical Books. The librarian of the N. E. Hist. Gen. 
Soc, Mr. W. P. Greenlaw, who this year completes a decade of ser- 
vice, says in his annual report — " AYhat can be done to secure in the 
printing of genealogical books the use of a durable book paper like 
that so common fifty or sixty years ago? More than five times the 
amount of money that sufficed a dozen years ago for binding was re- 
quired this year, and this increase was largely due to the inferior 
quality of paper used during the last twenty years. If the use of 
such inferior paper continues, later generations of investigators may 
search in vain for copies of many genealogical works. Measures 
ought to be taken at once to warn prospective publishers against the 
folly of trying to preserve genealogical data by committing it to such 
perishable paper as that used in many, recent works, as the only out- 
look for ultimate preservation of a goodly number of such books is 
through the expensive Emery process." It is meet to add that the 
introduction of illustrations is responsible in part for the deteriora- 
tion of the paper used, more attention being paid to getting good 
prints from cuts, than to the durability of the paper.

With this issue of the Quarterly the editors introduce 
a department through which, without resorting to 
lengthy special articles, attention can be directed to 
subjects needing the cooperation of the genealogists 
of the country, or which permits timely and friendly 
criticism of the conduct of certain enterprises which, 
properly carried out, would be of great benefit. The 
editors throw open to readers of the Quarterl}^ the pages 
of this d_epartment for suggestions of general interest, 
the only restriction being that each correspondent shall 
sign in full or with initials indicating the writer. While 
the management of the magazine does not assume re- 
S])onsibility for what may appear in these columns, yet 
the fact that a subject is touched upon at all will be evi- 
dence that, in the opinion of the editors, investigation 
or discussion relating to that subject is pertinent and 

will be helpful. . 

The Grencalogical Bulletin, which was commenced in September, 
1903, to be issued fortnightly, and 'of which twenty-four issues ap- 
peared promptly, has suspended publication with the appearance of 
the index number completing the volume. As the publication met 
with a very favorable reception and obtained a goodly number of 
subscribers, it is proper that some explanation of the decision to sus- 
pend publication should be given. The entire management of the 
Bulletin was the personal care of Mr. Eben Putnam, one of the edi- 
tors of this magazine, who finds himself utterly unable to give the 
Urae to editing the Bulletin which that publication would need, if it 
was to be kept up on the lines which he api)roved and which met 
with so hearty a support. At the same time, subscribers should un-

derstand that they themselves are in a great measure responsible for 
the giving up of the publication, for without pledges of prompt re- 
newals no one could be found willing to assume the responsibility of 
continuing the Bulletin or giving his time to its management as Mr. 
■ Putnam had done. In response to a request that all subscribers in- 
tending to renew would inform the publishers of their intention, very 
few thought it worth while to do so. It is true, after failure to re- 
ceive the following numbers of the Bulletin, more than two hundred 
wrote to the publishers, praising the Bulletin and expressing hopes of 
its continuance. But it was then too late, the Research Publication 
Co. had given up its Boston office and Mr. Putnam himself had made 
other plans which called for his whole time. 

One of these plans looks to the more frequent issue of the Genea- 
logical Quarterly. In order to make this possible the cooperation of 
some one well known to genealogists and who would consent to give 
time and labor without compensation was necessary. Mr. Putnam 
therefore purchased of the Research Publication Company the Gene- 
alogical Quarterly, which he had established in 1890 as the Salem 
'. ::■ Press Historical and Genealogical Record, and associated in its di- 
rection Mr. Stephen P. Sharpies of Cambridge, whose Kimball gene- 

• alogical work and especially his disinterested devotion to the cause 
of record preservation is widely known. Mr. Sharpies has consented 
to assume the labor of editorial direction of the Quarterly, assisted by 
Mr. Putnam, its former editor. Mr. Putnam continues to be respon- 
sible for the cost of publication of tfie magazine, and is solely re- 
sponsible for any debt incurred in its behalf. That the magazine 
might be issued as often as once a month needed the services of an 
enthusiastic genealogist, and this having been secured in the person 

: of Mr. Sharpies, the principal difficulty of a monthly issue has been 
done away with. 

Beginning with the issue next succeeding the present number the 

v; magazine will appear monthly, will consist of thirty-two pages each 
issue, and, for the present, the price of subscription will remain un- 

■ ^ 

The publisher requests subscribers to consider in connection with 

the Quarterly that this magazine has been published during -a period 

of fourteen years, without the support of any organization, without 

:; pledges from any source, and that the entire responsibility of its pub- 

202 Editorial and Correspondance. [January 

lication, with the exception of the last two years, has fallen entirely 
upon him, who has given his time and money freely to the cause, 
contributing, he is well aware, material of unequal values with the 
different volumes, but, nevertheless, being the means by which a 
great deal of valuable and useful genealogical material has been made 
available. The work of the publisher is rendered less difficult when 
subscribers renew the yearly subscription promptly. 

An index to the last three volumes is being prepared and will be 
sent to any address upon completion, upon receipt of 25c; it will not 
be mailable under second-class rates. 

The proposition of Mr. Edwin D. Mead that the State of Massa- 
chusetts abandon the historic Indian as the principal charge on its 
coat of arms, substituting therefor a picture of a ship supposed to 
represent the Muyiiower, is receiving considerable attention. The 
present seal of the State may not be an ideal one, it certainly is open 
to criticism in representing the Indian in a perfectly unnatural posi- 
tion of holding the bow in the wrong hand, but whether the adoption 
of the picture of a ship which might be so unlike the real Mayflower 
as to prevent recognition by any of her passengers, would be an im- 
provement, is open to doubt. 

The Pilgrim band did much for the cause of human liberty, and 
this, is very generally recognized ; in fact, so much so, that manj^ 
Americans and foreigners think of Massachusetts as settled by the 
Pilgrims, rather than founded by the men >vhose leaders were of the 
Puritan party and who were not by any means when they left Eng- 
land in sympathy with the Separatist movement. Yet it might be 
truly said that the success of the Plymouth colony was due wholly to 
the example of a few men, as Bradford and Winslow, who came with 
the Mayflower band, and such men as Ilatherly, who followed much 
later. Plymouth Rock, and in the background symbols of the indus- 
trial and commercial interests of the Colony and State, by which it 
attained its present position, would be a fitter design for the State 
seal than an ideal ship and a tallow dip as shown in Mr. Mead's 
illustration. However, the Indian makes a picturesque design, and 
when his bow is placed by due legislative enactment in his left hand, 
will undoubtedly prove satisfactory to the coming generations to 
whom the Indian as known to the older members of the present gen- 
eration even, will be no longer existent. E. P.
